“Autumn Glow”

I am noticing that the light is changing as summer winds down and autumn approaches.  The temperature/hue of it seems warmer, more golden, cozier, softer.  Do you notice it too?

The fabric I used for Patience’s new dress reminds me of the change in the light.

Patience’s cotton dress is made with a warm pink/muted salmon Japanese fabric.  The roses are in a deep ivory with fine warm rusty brown shading.  The skirt is embellished with ivory English cotton Cluny lace.

This fabric is still very much in the pink family as pastel warm pink accessories look perfect with it.  Patience’s crocheted mesh drawstring bag is made with warm pink cotton thread.  The bottom of the bag is decorated with an ivory resin rose bead.  I hand beaded a sepal around the base of the rose with coordinating Delica beads.  The bag opens and closes with self handles.  Inside her bag is a fringed edge cotton lawn hanky pressed into triangles.  The bracelet is made with the same Delica beads and a smaller rose than the one used for the bag.  Patience’s hand made headband is an asymmetrical cluster of blossoms/pearls sewn onto a warm pink length of crochet.  Ivory tights complete the accessories.

Patience’s hand knit cardigan is made with lace weight merino/silk yarn in ivory.  Coordinating and mirrored motifs are hand embroidered on the front.  The cardigan can be worn unbuttoned or buttoned with ivory glass pearl beads.

      The last two mornings have been downright chilly here! Usually, when this happens there’s no going back. Patience says hello back. Thanks, Terri. I hope you are having a great week.
